The Internet is always full of rumors and speculation. Today we have a supposed report that Microsoft Points will be phased out towards the end of the year and replaced with real money. I’ve never really been on the “die MS Points” bandwagon. I like them actually. I suppose I don’t really care either way but I know there are some out there who despite the points system.
Well if this report is true then you’ll be spending cash amounts now instead of points. The one thing it’ll clear up is the leftover Microsoft Point balances that everyone has. You could never buy just enough that you needed so that’ll be a good thing if this is true.
What say you? Do you prefer Microsoft Points or would you rather simply have cash amounts to decipher? Those of you who don’t want credit cards on file will no doubt be upset about this. As it stands now, you can easily go to a store and buy some Microsoft Points to use on your account without having to constantly remove your credit card.
However, if this does happen, you’ll have to keep a credit card on file for purchases or either be resigned to the fact that you’ll have to constantly remove it after each purchase.
